Lynne Groenewald

I am mother to two boys whose arrivals sparked the awakening in me of a fascination and reverence for pregnancy, birth, babies, the crucial time just after birth, as well as for women’s bodies and well-being in general. I left behind my background in clothing design and retail gradually, as I qualified as a Mama Bamba Way Antenatal Facilitator in 2014 and completed  my Ashtanga Vinyasa Based Yoga Teacher’s Training with Jax Jai in 2015, to focus on prenatal yoga.  I am now slowly adding conscious dance facilitation to my offerings.

Offerings

Prenatal Yoga

I have weekly classes for pregnant women, where we focus on gently and consciously building strength and flexibility in preparation for motherhood, and give ourselves the much needed space to really connect with our breath, cultivate a deep awareness of our bodies and with that, practice tapping into our inner knowledge to empower our journey in becoming mothers.   Throughout the class we bring our focus to our connection with our babies, starting to nurture our bond in the lead up to birth.

Time:  Friday mornings, 8:00  – 9:15                                                                                                                 Cost:  R 100 per class, or R 360 prepaid for 4 classes  OR                                                                       T 100 per class, or T 360 prepaid for 4 classes*                                                                                         Venue:  196 Victoria Road, Woodstock (in the yoga studio, or in Artemis’ rooms in the same building)

Beginner – Intermediate Yoga

I share yoga loosely based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa system and drawing from my experience in moving my body through dancing.  The classes are structured to provide a challenge for everyone while allowing for various levels of experience and ability, and taking into account the ever changing needs and other internal and external factors present in the class.

Time:  Wednesday  mornings, 8:00 – 9:15                                                                                                 Cost:  R 100 per class, or R 360 prepaid for 4 classes  OR                                                                        T 100 per class, or T 360 prepaid for 4 classes*                                                                          Venue:  196 Victoria Road, Woodstock (in the yoga studio, or in Artemis’  rooms in the same building)                                                                                                                                                      Bring:  Yoga mat, light blanket and water

Antenatal Classes

Antenatal Information Sessions

I invite couples or individuals who are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant, to see me for a private session where they can bring all their questions and explore their options and learn about what to expect.  An initial of once-off session would be largely information based, and in potential subsequent sessions there would be discussions on wider issues as well as process work and focus on ongoing support in preparation for birth and parenthood.

I facilitate an intensive 2 day workshop for expecting couples once a quarter.   Over the course of a weekend we lay a foundation of empowering your choices through information, we put together a toolbox of support and resources, and we tap into some process work as a group.  I take a maximum of 5 couples per course.
